Compared to the Ramones' 1993 Acid Eaters or Rush's 2004 Feedback, these black-metal-turned-ambient-experimental Norwegians' paisley-underground excavations are both obscure and twee: Despite Byrds and Jefferson Airplane covers, there's only one legit hit (via The Electric Prunes), and several from bands familiar only to collectors. The concept is '60s psych in its most callow and naïve guise, with as much merry-go-round swirl, madrigal harmony, and minor-key dreaminess as proto-metal fuzz. The Troggs and 13th Floor Elevators nuggets chug heartily, but Ulver are mods at heart, not rockers.
